New Julfa is a quarter of Isfahan, Iran, located on the outskirts of the city. In the beginning of the 17th century (during the Safavid period), over 150,000 Armenians were moved there by force from Julfa in Nakhichevan. New Julfa is still an Armenian populated (25.000)area with an Armenian school. Vank Cathedral, the Church of Bethlehem at Nazar Avenue, Saint Mary church at Julfa Square and the Yerevan church in the Yerevan area are all placed there.
